SYNOPSIS

Synopsis

Mourning is such hard work. You want to cry but you don't want to be unglam. And what do you wear to your friend's wake if you have to go to a club after that? The death of someone special causes a group of friends to re-examine their lives and their feelings about death. Fundamental questions are asked: Will I go to hell if I'm a bitch? Am I spending too much time at the gym? Can I be gay and married? The group of friends soon make important realisations: That you can be married and gay; that you can be friends and use each other; that you can be top and bottom. If you ask nicely, will your friend's corpse come back to life?

Note: The characters in Top or Bottom can originally be found trying to organise Singapore's first Pride Parade in Mardi Gras.
